Cascade Chapter of IPC Designers Council Meets Dec. 7


Reading time ( words)

The Cascade Chapter of the Designers Council's next Lunch and Learn meeting will take place December 7 at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology-Kirkland Campus (LWIT).

This meeting we will cover flex fabrication, materials, and techniques as well as some do's and don'ts. Jerome Larez, an application engineer with MicroConnex, will be the guest speaker for this event.

With the ever-increasing emphasis on IoT (Internet Of Things), the demand for flex circuits and designs is increasing rapidly. This will be an opportunity to get helpful insights into flex fabrication and learn how to avoid some common errors made by flex designers.

Following the meeting, there will be Altium User Group meeting for anyone who is interested. Stop by and become part of the conversation as Product Marketing Engineer David Haboud meets with local users and other industry advocates to discuss some of the toughest “how to” and “why” questions surrounding Altium Designer and the PCB design industry.

Presentation: Flex Printed Circuit Fabrication 

Speaker Jerome Larez will focus on flex printed circuit (FPC) fabrication. He will be discussing common materials used in FPC fabrication, including stiffeners and coverlays. Jerome will outline FPC fabrication techniques, how to better communicate your design requirements to fabricators, and some of the do’s and don’ts for FPC design.

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Friday, December 7 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational Lunch and Learn event. The cost is $20 to cover the cost of lunch.

Darwin E. George: Seeking PCB Design Job at Retirement Age

10/29/2018 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, IConnect007
Some of us dream of living a life of leisure at 70. But not Darwin E. George. This septuagenarian wants to find a job designing PCBs. We met up with Darwin at AltiumLive, where he was networking and trying to get his foot in the door with one of the companies that are hiring now. Darwin told us about his career in PCB design, his experience learning a new EDA tool, and why he would rather design high-speed PCBs instead of playing shuffleboard for the rest of his life.
